Move oven rack to bottom third of oven.
Preheat oven to to 425F.
Place a small rack inside a roasting pan; pour 1 cup water in pan.
Rinse chicken inside and out, and pat dry with paper towels.
In a small bowl, mix together mustard, brown sugar, rosemary, thyme, garlic, oil, salt & pepper to make a paste.
Add lemon zest and mix again; set aside.
Squeeze juice from lemon inside cavity of chicken, then tuck the used lemon half right inside it.
Tie legs together with kitchen string.
Rub reserved paste over surface of chicken and using your fingers, carefully rub paste between skin and meat on breast and thighs.
Place chicken on rack breast side down.
Roast uncovered for 30 minutes.
Remove chicken from oven and flip over.
Add a bit more water if it has evaporated.
Return to oven and roast for 35 - 40 more minutes, depending on size of bird.

This recipe is so easy to put together and the bird turned out out so flavourful and moist. This is a keeper!!! I used white wine in lieu of water (2 cups).
So good and easy too! Plus a great way to use up garden herbs. I used splenda brown sugar and bottled lemon juice but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!
